Over the past few decades, philosophers of physics and others have made important contributions to the mathematical and conceptual foundations of physical theories by critically analyzing how the mathematical structures of such theories inform central philosophical concerns, and in some cases by proving new theorems of high philosophical interest. This conference aims to bring together physicists, mathematicians, and philosophers of physics working on such technical issues. The venue is April 4, 2013 at the Center for Philosophy of Science in Pittsburgh.
For two decades the Central European Workshop on Quantum Optics (CEWQO) has provided an annual forum for the quantum optics and quantum information community to present their latest scientific results. An important feature of the meeting is the possibility for young researchers to interact with some of the leading figures in quantum optics and related fields.
A postgraduate student conference on Mathematical Techniques for Quantum Physics will take place in Nottingham (U.K.) from 7 - 9 November 2012.
The conference will emphasise quantum information, quantum gravity and quantum disordered systems. Respectively, the invited speakers from each area are:
*Nilanjana Datta (Cambridge),
*Samuel Braunstein (York), and
*Karoline Wiesner (Bristol).
ICMIS2011 will be hosted by Sohag University in South Egypt, 10-13 Sep 2011 and will feature advances in Mathematical science and technology presented by leading African and international researchers. The conference will provide the opportunity to showcase research in mathematics, theoretical physics and information science and technology to engender dialogue and collaboration between Egyptian and international researchers.
Some Grants for Young and Early Stage Researchers are available.
We are pleased to inform you that following a very successful editions of Benasque 1998, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2009, we are organizing another workshop of the similar type from June 12 to July 1, 2011. This is to invite you to apply using the electronic form that you can find on the website specified below. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible and not later than the end of March 2011.
